Philadelphia’s Moore College of Art & Design is now accepting animated short film submissions for its 2017 “MooreWomenArtists Film Festival: Women in Animation,” taking place during Women’s History Month, March 23-26 at the college at 20th Street and The Parkway.
The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2016; see moore.edu/2017FestSubmit for more information and to submit films.
Continuing to honor its legacy as the first and only all women’s visual arts college in the US, the school’s second MooreWomenArtists Film Festival will showcase women working in the ever-growing animation industry. The theme aligns with Moore’s first graduating class of its Animation & Game Arts program. The festival will include feature length and short films, ranging from early animation to contemporary work for video games and interactive projects, as well as lectures and panels.
Announced program highlights include Emily Hubley presenting the work of her mother, the late Faith Hubley — winner of festival honors from Cannes, Venice, London and San Francisco as well as 14 CINE Golden Eagle awards; Latvian filmmaker Signe Baumane‘s Rocks in My Pocket; Paper Red founding member Jessica Ciocci‘s Animation Mix Tape — a fully integrated video collage of work by women animators whom she admires; independent Asian-Canadian filmmaker, writer and visual artist Ann Marie Fleming‘s Window Horses; and the panel “Game Changers: Women Making Games” with Kat Webster (Bioware) and Lauren Brown (EA games).
Full details will be announced in January. Learn more about Moore College of Art & Design at www.moore.edu.
